First of all, let me assure

First of all, let me assure you that I, as well as anyone else reading this forum, believe you when you say that you suffer from frequent headaches. Headaches are very common in fibromyalgia and are often caused by muscle (myofascial) trigger points elsewhere in your body, commonly the neck and your shoulders.The pain is referred from these sites and can result in severe tension-type headaches. Some people with fibromyalgia suffer from migraines, which are different than tension headaches and have different accompanying symptoms, such as light sensitivity and nausea. Figuring out what type of headache you are experiencing may be helpful, as the treatments for each can be different.

In addition, it is important to know that headaches in fibromyalgia can result from other common fibromyalgia symptoms, such as sleep disturbance and even depression. Finding a way to improve sleep patterns may improve the frequency and intensity of headaches.

Some people find that relaxation exercises, massage, physical therapy and stress reduction techniques, alone or in combination with medication, help to ease their headaches. Seeing a doctor who specializes in fibromyalgia may be helpful.

I hope that you are able to find a professional to help you so that you can enjoy more pain-free days.
